CHINA AGAINST MODI’S ARUNACHAL VISIT: BJP DISMISSES OPPOSITION

ANM News Desk: China’s foreign ministry condemned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the disputed north-eastern border state of Arunachal Pradesh, saying it “resolutely opposes” activities by Indian leaders in the region.

Modi’s visit was part of a series of public meetings in the region aimed at garnering support for his Bharatiya Janata Party ahead of elections due by May.

Despite recent efforts to improve bilateral ties in both countries, disputes over the mountainous Indo-China border – which triggered a war in 1962 – and the region that China claims as southern Tibet have remained a sensitive issue.

SUSHI TYCOON WINS 278-KILOGRAM BLUEFIN TUNA IN TOKYO AUCTION

ANM News Desk: An endangered 278-kilogram bluefin tuna was sold for a massive £2.5 million (Rs 22.1 cr) in the first auction this year of Japan’s new fish market in Tokyo.

The fish was brought by sushi tycoon Kiyoshi Kimura, owner of Kiyomura Corp., who runs a very popular fast food and Sushi chain in the country. “The quality of the tuna I bought is the best,” he said. Kimura has been the winner of the annual auction for several years.

Japan has reportedly seen a 96% depletion in the stock from seas of bluefin tuna. However, the country still remains one of the biggest consumers of the endangered fish.

The fish was sold for £31 per pound in the previous years. Now, the price has gone up to £157 a pound due to the depletion of Bluefin in the market.

CHINA’S SUPPOSED ‘REHABILITATION CAMPS’ TO FIGHT TERRORISM

ANM News Desk: A United Nations panel has accused China of turning its far-flung western region of Xinjiang “into something that resembled a massive internment camp shrouded in secrecy, a ‘no rights zone’.” It estimates that there could be as many as one million Muslims who have been detained there.

Former detainees describe being tortured during interrogation, living in crowded cells and being subjected to a brutal daily regimen of Communist Party indoctrination that drove some people to suicide. Most of those who have been rounded up by the security forces are Uighurs, a Muslim ethnic minority that numbers some 10 million. Muslims from other ethnic groups, including Kazakhs, have also been detained.

Avijit Nandi Majumdar, Editor in Chief: Anti India activists, drug mafia and pro Pakistan and pro China elements dominate the list nominated by Awami League to fight in the ensuing crucial Bangladesh elections. AL has nominated dreaded international drug mafia Abdur Rehman Bodi’s wife from Cox bazar constituency. Bodi’s father Ezhar Miah was a very prominent leader of BNP in Teknaf when Gen Ershad was in power. Bodi’s entire family is allegedly invilved in narcotics trade and they operate at the international level through the golden drug triangle route of Myanmar, Thailand. Bodi’s father had married several times and one of his wives is from Rakhine state in Myanmar. But the most surprising is the nomination of known pro Pakistan activist Salman F Rehman from Dhaka.  He has business and family links in Karachi in Pakistan and he allegedly to be in close touch with ISI in Pakistan. Salman F Rehman allegedly has looted banks in Bangladesh and siphoned off several crores of rupees. Rehman has also ensured that his close associate dreaded mafia Pirzada Munir also got a ticket from ally Jatiya Party.  According to international watchdog, there are about 100 seats where persons with dubious links and known criminals and anti India personalities have managed to secure AL nomination.
